Rostan Chase played a match-winning knock and scored 94 runs in 115 balls with the help of 11 fours for Windies. He awarded with the player of the match award. After winning the player of the match award, Raston Chase said, “The pitch was helping the spinners and the captain asked us to restrict them under 200 and that’s what we did. The fingers are working well today and glad I got the wickets. If I bat early, the plan was to bat deep and bat-like in a Test match and take us home if the need be.”
“Losing early wickets and batting almost 50 overs, I’m really pleased and Shai Hope we know he is a class batsman and he understands his role in the team very well, that’s what cricket is all about. We have been having conversations about how we want to play the last two days and the guys have come in and showed great skill. It’s a total team effort and really pleased with the enthusiasm and energy,” Kieron Pollard said.
